Did you know over 1.5 million animals are euthanized in animal shelters every year in the United States because of overpopulation? One of the easiest things you can do as a responsible pet owner is to have your cat or dog spayed or neutered. Some veterinarians, however, do advise against traditional de-sexing of your pet, which they believe can create problems for your pet’s endocrine system. One alternative worth exploring is something called an “ovary-sparing spay,” which results in sterilization without endangering the endocrine system.
